Prosecutor drops DUI charge against Duck football player
EUGENE, Ore. - Drunk driving charges against a University of Oregon football player have been dropped after city prosecutors determined they could not prove the man's guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
Police arrested senior defensive tackle Isaac Remington on a charge of driving under the influence of intoxicants after a traffic stop at 12:30 a.m. Oct. 12 at 12th and Kincaid.
Remington was cited and released and wasn't booked into the Lane County Jail, police said.
Remington registered a .06 blood alcohol level, below the legal limit, but failed a field sobriety test, prosecutors said, prompting the officer to take him in.
The city prosecutor dropped the charge, saying the city couldn't prove Remington's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
The Ducks indefinitely suspended Remington from the team Oct. 12. The suspension was lifted Tuesday.
